    There was just some confusion. I was getting worried you were REALLY nitpicking haha.

    But that's understandable.

    I really don't think you can take a call on your iPhone while the phone is syncing with iTunes.


    Its not an odd thing.
    But the 755p and iPhone are not multi-tasking devices. That's the whole point of multi-tasking. There is no reason why USB data trasfer and voice should not be possible at the same time. You can watch a video and copy a file on your PC at the same time can't you? Hopefully it is an incorrect assumption on the part of Inside Sprint Now.

    Yeah I think its more of the fact that its safer just pushing the calls to voicemail in the middle of a transfer than risking data curroption.

    I mean, I don't expect to sync my Zune to my computer while listening to music.


    I just don't tink its too big of an issue. Probably also cause I don't think i'll be syncing all that much to the phone after my first sync.
